1,000 seats. 1,000 lives. 1,000 reasons.
Life-changing ministry occurs every week at Calvary Church. Beyond the Sanctuary, we reach across generational and cultural lines to impact growing populations in our area — specifically the Spanish-speaking community and young adults. A remodel of the Fellowship Hall will create a space that gives these congregations the ability to grow and minister as an extension of our weekend worship experience.
Since this Route 59 campus was built in 1993, one space has only been slightly updated—the Fellowship Hall. Off the beaten path of our main corridor, this multi-purpose room has been a central location for weekly ministry, from Believer’s Life classes to membership seminars to volunteer banquets. The Fellowship Hall is used to host more than 300 events each year. This transformation will provide adequate seating, a modern environment and updated technology.
Moving ahead, our vision is to use the Fellowship Hall as an extension of our weekend services. This plan requires a much-needed renovation to create an environment that fosters life-changing weekend worship experiences for:
The Fellowship Hall renovation project is a debt-free initiative. During the next six months, we are raising funds to fulfill this effort. You can pledge an amount to be given during this time period, or you can give a one-time gift.
Ways to Give:
Help us by committing to support the financial goal of raising $1 million for this project. Your gift will help propel the vision of reaching 1,000 new families in our community.
We also need your prayers during this renovation. Pray for wisdom and provision and that the remodel of this space would usher in a new season of ministry that enables us to reach more people than ever before.
October 14 is quickly approaching, and we can't wait to show you the brand new Fellowship Hall. In one week, we begin a lifetime of life-changing ministry for those within and outside the walls of our church building.
What's been happening this week?
We're finishing week 12 of renovation, and the excitement is building (pun intended). In two weeks, the Fellowship Hall doors will open for ministry and ultimately help us impact more families in our community.
Check out the latest progress:
Week 11 brings us a shape of the future. The heavy-lifting, load-bearing work is coming to an end, and the details that make a house a home have started. Take a peek at what else is going on in the hall!
Sometimes, a picture tells more than words. These picture tell a thousand reasons to make a difference.
This week, we saw a cloud form before our very eyes, and stubborn carpet remnants stick below our feet. (The world needs faith as tenacious as that old carpet!) That’s just the beginning:
We're just finishing renovation week eight and the future is appearing before our eyes. Electrical work will be inspected Friday and the new carpet is waiting patiently for its time to shine. Check out what else is happening in the hall:
Weeks six and seven worked hard together (just like our crew) to make sure the fellowship hall will be comfortable and welcoming to all who step foot on the (ordered and shipping) carpet.
Week five is looking alive! This week we saw both finishing touches and beginning preparations. All hands are on deck for every stage of this exciting process. Take a look at our recent progress!
Week four has brought so much more. This week's progress has been (very) behind the scenes. You may not see all the electrical work and sprinkler reconstruction, but it's all necessary for the final renovation. Here's what else is happening:
“This was a very good week,” was the encouraging news from the Fellowship Hall renovation crew. Superfluously glued carpet couldn't’t keep this dedicated group down. This week we’ve seen:
After only two weeks of work, we are officially a week ahead! Despite hot and wet weather, the Fellowship Hall progress is going strong.
Out with the old and in with the new. Construction is under way in our Fellowship Hall! In just over a week, so much progress has already been made!
